Our Heroes Dumby and Pokey

According to the Washington Post, at his Rose Garden press conference today President Bush defended his selection of Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court by saying:

"I know her well enough to be able to say she's not going to change. . . . Twenty years from now. . . . her philosophy won't change."

That, he said, "is important to me."

And there you have George Bush in a pretty much non-metaphorical nutshell. He actually values people who don't change. Maybe it's my years in education, but I always thought humans valued change. They call it learning.
